Ouvea Lekiny Cliffs Ascent
Ouvea Loyalty Islands New Caledonia

The Lekiny Cliffs Ouvea Tour (costing 800 cfp - about 8 Euro each) includes climbing up an interesting ladder to reach a platform carved by the sea hundreds of thousands of years ago during the time when the atoll was being tilted by the changing sea floor. The coral skeletons that formed the cliffs are mostly eroded into smooth stone but here and there you can clearly see the coral heads and their characteristic polyps. For details about this tour - and how to arrange it - click on the Island of Ouvea in the Tourism Guide to New Caledonia

More About Ouvea Loyalty Islands New Caledonia

Ouvea Atoll is the northernmost of the four Loyalty Islands. The eastern side of the atoll was uplifted millions of years ago so the whole eastern side forms one long narrow coral island with one of the world's most spectacular white sand beaches along the proctected lagoon. Ouvea is a 40 minute flight from Noumea, New Caledonia aboard Air Caledonie's new ATR turboprop planes. There is one 4 star Ouvea hotel - the Paradis d'Ouvea - two "Gites" and 6 "tribal stay" accommodation. There are also two managed campsites. Ouvea is popular with visitors - especially Japanese visitors - primarily because of the breathtaking beauty of the beach, but also because of the clear protected waters and coral reefs that offer great diving, interesting walks and annual festivals to attend. Two distinct cultural groups live on Ouvea, the Polynesian speaking people of the northern villages and the Melanesian speaking people of the southern villages. All of them also speak French and are French citizens because New Caledonia is part of France.
